Heavy loads can cause the back of your Chevrolet Tahoe to sag and add unnecessary stress to your suspension. This stress not only affects your brakes in a bad way, but your tires, headlight aim and handling suffer as well. To improve your Chevrolet Tahoe's ability to endure heavy loads, you need to add support to your existing coil springs.

Air Lift's AirLift 1000 adjustable air springs have 1,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity and are made specifically to fit inside your rear coil spring suspension for additional load assistance. You can inflate and deflate these tough, molded polyurethane helper springs as needed, ensuring the perfect amount of support for every load, every time. Easily level your Chevrolet Tahoe front to rear, and if you run dual air lines to the air springs at installation, then you can inflate the springs independently of one another for side-to-side leveling. AirLift 1000 is a breeze to install with standard tools and comes with an easy-to-follow instruction manual.

AirLift 1000 comes with manual inflation valves that are typically mounted on the bumper but can be installed anywhere on your Chevrolet Tahoe for easy access. For even more convenience and control, you can add a compressor and gauge system (sold separately), which will let you monitor and automatically inflate your air springs.

Air Lift kits are designed to keep your Chevrolet Tahoe at normal ride height. You can find the normal ride height of your Chevrolet Tahoe by unloading it and measuring the distance between the bottom edge of your wheel well and the center of the hub. After you find and record this distance, you can regulate the amount of air that you put into your air springs to maintain normal ride height - even when you are hauling a heavy load. You will need to adjust the air pressure in your air bags according to the size of your load.

Air Lift is positive that you will benefit from their air spring suspension system - so much so that they offer a 60-day satisfaction guarantee. Install and use AirLift 1000 springs for 60 days, and if you are not satisfied at the end of this time, you can remove them from your Chevrolet Tahoe and return them for a full product refund.

I installed these on my 2004 Burb Z71. It was much easier than I had thought it would be. After jacking it up, putting it on stands and lowering the axle back down, there was a huge gap in the springs for the air bags to pass through. The hardest part was attaching the air hose to the top of the bags after they were inside of the spring. The package included a heat shield for the exhaust pipe which I quickly threw away. There is a good 5 inches between the pipe and the spring. Routing the air hose back to the bumper was easy and I located the air valve in the plate that has the trailer wire hookups. I hope they work as advertised, I hate the back of my Burb sagging when I poll my camper.50542

Perfect item to level out a Chevy Suburban. Went in painlessly and I installed the valve right next to the trailer wiring connector. Can't even see it.40577

Expert Answers about Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs - Rear - AL60769                                           Do you have a question about this Vehicle Suspension?

  • What is the Maximum Air Pressure for Air Lift 1,000 Pound Capacity Air Helper Springs
  • According to the instructions which I have linked for you for Air Lift suspension enhancement # AL60769, the maximum air pressure is 35 psi and the minimum is 5 psi. Over-inflation and under-inflation can damage the air bags so you will always want to stay within the 5 to 35 psi range.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation For 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe 4x4
  • Personally, since you are in the market for a smoother ride, I recommend the Coil Sumo Spring Custom Helper # CSS-1094R, which, as an added bonus will help support heavy loads on your rear suspension. The Coil Sumo Spring, unlike the AirLift # AL60769 that you referenced, will not have to be adjusted or monitored. I have attached the installation directions, but, basically, they simply fit within your existing coil springs and secures with zip ties.

  • Suspension Enhancement for 2007 Chevy Avalanche with OEM Auto-Leveling Suspension
  • According to Air Lift, the # AL60769 is not compatible with vehicles equipped with the OEM auto-leveling suspension, i.e, factory air shocks and would therefore not work on your Avalanche. A Timbren system, like part # TGMRYS4 would be compatible with the auto-level system. The advantage of a Timbren system is that is is passive, and will not come into play unless the bed of your Avalanche is loaded. As more weight is added, the springs become stronger and more resistant. Keep in mind that no

  • Eliminating Sag Caused by 7500 lb Boat Trailer Hitched to 2002 Chevy Suburban
  • The AirLift springs are not particularly difficult to install. They would install inside of your coil springs. A helper spring kit like the AirLift # AL60769 you referenced is primarily designed to help suspend cargo stored in the cargo area of your Suburban, not to compensate for tongue weight applied to the hitch. For your situation, a Weight Distribution kit is the best choice for leveling your Suburban. For a tongue weight of 800 lbs, I would recommend the Reese SC W/D kit, part #
